Hot Headed - Sugarbush Stoke Exchange

Thursday, June 21, 2012

Happy first full day summer! With the enhanced heat yesterday and today, it sure feels like the real deal.

Sometimes, higher temps can cause orneriness or lethargy. Luckily, there are numerous ways to keep your cool in the Mad River Valley, no matter how sweltering it gets. 

One of our favorite ways is to head up the mountain for a little elevation adjustment, go into the forest for some shade, then turn on the breeze-machine with some fast downhill riding. The faster you go, the more refreshing it gets.

Congratulations to all the race winners at the US Grand Prix of DH last weekend, including Johnny Egan!

Once at the bottom, myriad streams, ponds and rivers are invariably close. This proximity to sheltered swimholes and sun-dappled spring-fed ponds is key. Does a fresh dip in the Mad sound good right now? Silly question, of course it does.

Cool tasty beverages at the Brewgrass Fest last weekend.
Remember to drink plenty of cool tasty beverages.

Thank you all for a great Brewgrass Fest last weekend. However, just because the Fest is done, doesn't mean the beer is gone. Based on our thoroughly unscientific research, the Castlerock Pub has the best on-tap selection of any ski area east of the Mississippi. Go ahead, prove us wrong. ;)

Now that school is out and summer is officially here, it's time to be here in the Mad River Valley. We hope to see you soon.
